An excellent small wedding venue. Food was very good, service excellent, flexible arrangements for music and not expensive. The cost of the room was deducted from the overall cost. Overall, very good value for money.

Wasn't impressed with the small, tired looking room, very disappointed with it. The window had frosted glass which made it feel like a prison. The walls were very thin, and you could hear what people were talking about in the next room, even listened to someone snoring! There was no lift to the top floor, and very steep stairs, not... More

281 is local to us so we only usually use the restaurant and bar either for business or pleasure. We have always found Lisa and her team to be highly accommodating and have enjoyed the refreshments and surroundings. It's a lovely building with some tasteful renovation done in recent years and there's a lovely patio area out front where you... More

So I booked a 'suite' here at the 281. Location is good and it is easy to find. Ample parking too which is good. On arrival I checked it and was told my room was on the second floor. No lift. When I got to the room I was very disappointed that the decor advertised on the website bore absolutely... More

The friendly welcome is a nice start. The accommodation is perfectly adequate, at the price, but lacks some presentation. A chair in the room would be welcome. Problems with getting a TV reception and lack of soap in the shower- gel dispenser are minor irritations. Steep stairs and one or two steep steps immediately outside the bedroom door demand attention... More

A warm and friendly. Welcome on arrival with some useful tips on the gig we were going to. Kind enough to plug our cool box in down stairs save carrying to our room. We were told that the owners had been there three 3 years and had refurbished downstairs and the bedrooms were next. The room was serviceable and comfortable... More

We stayed here during the spring bank holiday. I found it very expensive for what it offers. The accomodation is not bad. Bedrooms are recently refurbished and quite comfortable. It is not a 5* B&B though. It is average and good. Wall are paper thin. If you have bad luck and stay side by side with noisy and rude people... More

281 has a great location and good service. It has been refurbished - almost complete- and has a very nice new bar. I've stayed at least 10 times and the service has always been friendly and efficient. Free Wi-Fi and a good breakfast. Mansfield does not have many central hotels, the big chains are on the outskirts- but 281 is... More

My husband and I have stayed here each year from 2011 while our disabled son is staying overnight at Portland College for their annual reunion (and 281 was recommended by the college). We drive up from Kent so it's a hectic weekend. This makes us the more glad of a comfortable bed in a pleasant room. The new decoration is... More
